I'm outside of the mainstream, as in I question consumption, love making/cooking/crafting, and, in theory, building... and I'd love to live closer to the land one day.
I have great appreciation for quality, logical efficiency, and hilariousness, so if we ever play Cards Against Humanity you'll know how to play to my weaknesses.
Recovering from a suburban childhood, I enjoy the texture of the city and regularly escape to the woods, and I drink life in! Drawn to authentic people, with friends I am usually up for anything and am always there to listen. In the kitchen, I think that recipes are merely a platform to spring from. As a traveller, I'd prefer to live, eat, laugh with locals. Short-term/cruise/resort trips make me queazy.
I'm often one to bare my honest opinion, and during tough times I like to talk it through. I question, seeking to understand. I also have a bit of a stubborn streak - it makes me determined to do my own taxes, even though it takes me a while. I think anything is possible, we just need to get up and do it.
What's important to me? A healthy planet - starting with myself, I enjoy regular exercise and eating well. For me eating well means thinking about where my food is coming from, where it's going, what it does in my body and growing and cooking as much of it as I can. My family and my goddaughter live a little ways away, but I make an effort to visit them regularly.
Work-wise I'm an entrepreneur blazing a trail to create a better, more livable city. It's exciting, yes I'm scared sometimes, and no, I'm not going to tell you all about it through online chat. You can ask me about it in person if you'd like.
What about you?
You've likely heard your friends say that they can't believe that you're single because you are such a great guy. Indeed, you are:
You're type of guy that is willing to plant trees whose shade you may never sit under. You boldly ask the important questions, you're engaging in conversation and enjoy discussing just about everything, your eyes and ears are open to the world around you. Comfortable in your own skin, you have your shit together. A lust for life drives you, and you know roughly is which direction you're headed.
You're on a quest to find your life partner.
